I think Jeff is talking about the event in SA, which some western Vic boats may have attended.
I am guessing Mitch was asking about the Cat Challenge at Loch Sport which is what this thread is about and apparently he was too hung over to attend
. Making that assumption
I had a good day at Loch Sport Cat Challenge and thanks to Pulse Credit Union, came away with the winners cheque for $100.
Matt Stone pushed me all the way but, never passed me after I passed him shortly after the start. Course was very fast, lots of reaching, without spinnakers as wind was gusting around 20knots+ in parts
. Didn't notice the rain too much
as there was so much spray around
. Local knowledge meant Pete headed straight for the out of sight marks, but Matt and I managed to head for where he was pointing and stay between him and the marks, sorry Pete
Had good time at the BBQ Saturday night, Great Steak
, plenty of old sailors around, talking about the old days, shown some amazing footage of some of the crowds on the beach at local events in the past, Ski Races etc. Chatting with "Duck" DeLange about the cross over of sailing families we have known since the 60's and other Yvonne sailors, looks like we may have to watch out for the Yvonnes in the future, they have reduced minimum weight to 110kg I think it was :o, so they are all pulling out lead and the antique furniture
Thanks to Pete for a great weekend
, unrivalled hospitality as allways. Topped it off with a good sail at home in Paynesville on Sunday in even more wind
